Ferries not owned by a public district (such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District) are regulated by the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). The ferry must obtain CPUC approval before operating on any specific route and may only charge rates that have been approved by the CPUC. While ferries providing solely round trip service or charter service are not subject to rate regulation, the operator of such ferries must still be properly registered with the CPUC.

Goodin MacBride attorneys have assisted ferry operators in both the registration process and the more extensive application process by which a ferry operator obtains authority from the CPUC to provide scheduled service in California.
